AWA Members in the news

We're excited for three of our members, Ralph Lee, George Callen and Bob Estrin and their coverage in the news!

Ralph Lee

Why Not Wagyu? A Texas rancher is sharing his enthusiasm for Japanese cattle beyond the state’s borders.

Lifelong cattleman Ralph Lee knows a good thing when he sees it.

And driving through the pastures of his Central Texas ranch, he sees what he believes is the answer to providing high-quality premium beef, in the form of Wagyu cattle.

For the past four years, Lee has advocated passionately for the breed, introducing Wagyu genetics into his own herd and working to promote Wagyu cattle in the United States.

“I was convinced I was doing the right thing from the beginning and am even more convinced today,” Lee says. As evidenced by his short four-year rise from novice breeder to Texas Wagyu Association and American Wagyu Association director, Lee’s enthusiasm and commitment are obvious.
